CHICAGO—Loews Hotels & Resorts completed the acquisition of the 556-room InterContinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel.
Located less than two miles from O’Hare Airport and 13 miles from downtown Chicago, the property has been rebranded as the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel.
The hotel is across the street from the Donald E. Stephen’s Convention Center, adjacent to the Fashion Outlets of Chicago and near the Rosemont Entertainment District. Loews Chicago O’Hare features three restaurants and bars, more than 53,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, and a curated art gallery.
“As we grow and expand the brand, we always look for properties that appeal to all kinds of travelers—leisure travelers, the business traveler, as well as groups,” stated Paul Whetsell, president/CEO, Loews Hotels & Resorts. "Loews Hotels has a strong presence in serving the meetings market and we’re excited about the wealth of meetings and event opportunities that the addition of Loews Chicago O’Hare will provide for our customers.”
This addition is part of Loews expanding its footprint throughout the Midwest. Earlier this month, the company acquired the Graves 601 hotel, now renamed Loews Minneapolis Hotel, and in February, the 400-room new-build Loews Chicago Hotel, located downtown, will open.
